With thoughts turning to summer holidays, why not consider whisking yourselves away to Robin Hood’s Bay for a night or two, either with the other half or a good chum or two.
Best visited during the warmer months, Green Cottage is a little winner if you’re looking for a pad that sits in between beach-chic and cosy-cottage. It can be found mere moments away from the beach, though inside boasts traditional country good looks that you can’t help fall in love with.
It’s bursting with character; expect to find plenty of original features as you explore the rooms, along with a few nautical nods along the way interiors-wise.
Highlights in the lounge include exposed beams and original floorboards, shabby-chic timber panelling and exposed stone walls. There’s also a neat built-in cathedral cupboard (also original) and a feature fireplace.
You’ll find the kitchen on the lower ground floor, packed with all the essentials (fridge/freezer, gas hob, electric oven, microwave, dishwasher and washer/dryer), plus lovely extras like a big, period farmhouse table, bespoke oak worktops, original ships lighting and doors that open out to the balcony – a south-facing spot that’s perfect for alfresco brunch or dinner after a hard day in the sun.
Bedroom-wise, you have two – one on the first floor and the other on the second. Sleeping on the first floor? Then your space benefits from a double bed and an open feature fireplace, plus a separate bathroom nearby (check out the cast iron bath – dreamy).
The second boudoir provides breathtaking 180-degree views of Robin Hood’s Bay and is kitted out with a gorgeous period pine double bed and en-suite bathroom with exposed stone walls.
